I stopped spending money on canisters of protein and meal replacements and started focusing on whole foods. Way way way cheaper!!! And the plus is that I have found that my recovery is faster when consuming these whole food shakes. So it's a win win for me!
This was a quick meal I whipped up in the blender instead of juicing. My smoothie was consumed first followed by a huge bowl of fruit. Notice the big beautiful strawberry in the middle. It was shaped like a heart before I cut the leaves off. Sooooo pretty and soooo yummy!
Post Run Smoothie
1 cup cold green tea
1 cup blueberries
1 cup spinach
1 cup pineapple
Add more filtered water or coconut water to achieve the consistency you desire and blend for about 1 minute on high or go longer to get it smooth. I use a lot of liquid because I wanted a very juicy consistency.
This smoothie is full of dark fruits and veggies to aid in recovery. The green tea is a metabolic fat burning boost. The pineapple makes it sweet!
Enjoy and Slurp!
